Yudachi: before you buy it

I just want to point out something you should consider before buying this ship:

 

Yes it has 15km torps which is nice, but they give the enemy a reaction time of 12.8 sec. 

 

That is really long (only Shimakaze 20km torps are worse with 15.5 sec; Gearing has 8.2 sec for example). 

 

Unlike Shimas 20km torps, they are not 15, but only 8, so they will be even easier to dodge, when you are not using the reload booster. 

 

Have not played the ship, maybe it is not bad at T7. Just wanted to point that out, as the reaction time for the torps is not explained in the shop.

I guess from the Post that Yuudachi was Added to Buy somewhere ? ^^

Didnt Notice ^^

 

As for the Torps. How is the Reaction Time when you use the Torpedo Speed Skill to make them 5 Knots but 20% less Range. As they then become 12km Torpedoes.

Not a sound that this was comming. I found out by seeing this post. Well done WG!

 

Not that I'm going to buy it anyway with me leaving the game but the ship itself looks pretty "meh". So, no "Poi" for me.

 

Thanks for the word up!

 

EDIT: The wiki is not updated (it says she has 203 mm guns) and there are no recent info on the ship on YT so I have no idea what this ship is more than the obvious.

Reduces reaction time from 12.8s to 11.8s ie still crap.

Looking at her properties, I doubt that she is good.

12 km torps would work better on her. 15km are not needed on Tier VII.

Well as someone noted already Torpedo Acceleration is basically a no brainer giving 12km 62kt torps, so I guess compared to Shira you gain some range (2km) for some alpha on the torps and trade some detectability and a bit of ship speed and gun reload for having TRB and smoke at the same time

I See.

So basicly while the Range is Fairly High. Especially for Tier 7.

The Torpedoes will likely not hit anything but the Heavy BBs that still got the Dreadnought Design. (You know these BBs that look like a Bathtube and usually got like 25 Knots)

 

How do you even Calculate this tough.

Ranges and Speeds in the Game are not Realistic.

If it was Realistic Speeds. The Shimas Torps with 2.5km Spotting Range would give you an Reaction Time of 80 Seconds lol

 

Also the Wiki does not Note Yuudachi Stats.

Could someone give us the Core Data ?

Max Concealment, HP etc ?

Except dreadnoughts are VERY agile in terms of turning radius and assuming user is aware of concept of A and D keys, landing hits on these are unlikely.

 

and 3rd party site because working official wiki is for the weak:cap_book:

They usually have ships well in advance. (e. g. Italian cruisers right now)

Like we had not enough useless 20 km border licking Shimas at TX, Assashios at TVIII, now we will get the same at TVII?

The only use I can imagine out of this  PoS is to set enemy BBs to show broadsides.

Saw the stats of the ship, they seem average at best, bad or uninspiring with most, especially the torps. (unless they are stupidly fast but 12 sec reaction time? lol)

It certainly seems a bit meh. It's not as if the guns on the Shiratsuyu are overpowered as they are, so the slower reload seems a bit pointless. And the torps are... eeeh.

 

Might be half-decent using an Asashio-specialized captain, but doesn't really seem worth it.

That's the only positive thing I would see.

Using my 19 p Asashio captain with her.

No actually its the other way Around.

The Yuudachi Torps actually only have a Detectability Range of 1.9km which is not actually Bad.

The Reason for the High Reaction Time is that the Torpedoes are Fairly Slow with only 57 Knots

 

The Guns having a longer Reload and a Gun less is also Dissappointing. Because this DD Effectively is Outgunned even by Akatsuki which is the Japanese Torpedo DD and among the Weakest DDs in this Tier when it comes to the Guns. (Which is fine cause its got Great Torpedoes)

 

But the most Annoying thing to me. Is actually the Low Damage of only 15k Alpha for the Torpedoes of the Yuudachi.

 

 

 

 

However.

I am actually considering for another Reason to actually Buy it anyways.

And that is that it has the Torpedo Reload Booster Consumable.

And thats actually rather Extreme at Tier 7

 

If you use the Torpedo Speed Skill. You get 62 Knot Torpedoes with 12km Range and 11 Seconds Reaction Time.

And with the Reload Booster you can Every 2 Minutes effectively Throw 16 Torpedoes at Once.

Which allows for a Yugumo Style Torpedo Wall at Tier 7.

So even with the high Reaction Time and low Alpha Damage. You will likely be able to deal alot of Damage to BBs.

 

The DD gets 6.1km Detection Range. Which is Pretty Good on Tier 7 as well.

And since your mostly going to Torp Heavier Ships. You can really Stealth Torp pretty effectively with this DD.

 

 

We will See.

Right now its an Prioritiy for me so ^^

IMHO after testing her in the last patches, she is neither good nor fun.

The torps are too slow and to easily spotted to hit anyone but the most dumb enemies.

So beware. I'd recommend Asashio for the interested instead.

Isn't the reload time 240s?

Shiratsuyu at T7 has the reload booster too, for her 10km, 9.8 sec reaction torps. 

 

Just try that and ask yourself if you want to give a 20% longer reaction time to gain 20% more range. Then you have your answer.

Do you get smoke AND torp reload booster?

I think so. Judging from the comments, the daily bounce is still a couple of months out so im not sure when he will post a review (of course in his own time).

 

Still isn't worth it just to be useful for a few secs and only in certain situations. Doesn't seem like a fun or good ship at all which is a shame too be honest.
